Out of the 10,000 attendees at this year’s Web Summit over 2,000 are listed as the founder, CEO or employee of a technology startup. Most of these companies are manning stands in the main hall and hundreds are pitching at one of four dedicated stages running from morning until evening. With a sea of entrepreneurs vying for attention, how can a startup make it worth their while?

It’s exhausting but worth it, says GoPrezzo founder and CEO Aaron Taylor. GoPrezzo is a casual mobile gaming tournament platform with a base in both Belfast and New York. This is their first time at the Web Summit and it’s been a busy few days.

Perspective: Graham Royce & Irish Tech


True-colour image of Ireland on an extremely rare, cloudless day.

Out of a population of 4.59 million there exists in Ireland a potential workforce of just over 2 million people. (Currently, the unemployed account for a sickeningly large 14.3% of that number.) However, by virtue of education and temperament only a very small subset of those available to work are either willing or able to involve themselves in the challenges of entrepreneurship in the tech sector.

Dublin Startup Weekend

Dublin Startup Weekend is taking place across the weekend of the 25th of February at the Digital Hub in Dublin. The organisers Sean Murphy and Amy Neale were so “blown away with what people were able to achieve over the weekend” at the last Dublin Startup Weekend held in May 2010 that they have decided to run it again.

We spoke to Amy, who is a Program Manager at NDRC which is s an enterprise focused on translating research output into commercial products, about what will be happening this year.

How did the idea for Dublin Startup Weekend come about?

David H. Hansson from Basecamp: Starting Up in the 'Real World'

David Heinemeier Hansson is one of the creators of Basecamp. It is a web-based application designed to help people share and coordinate the ongoing work they have to do on their projects. At Technology Voice we use it primarily to keep track of to-do lists and schedules, but also for other things such as shared document editing. Last year, David gave a talk at Future of Web Apps which is being held again in London in October, and we thought we would share some of our notes from his session.
